Merlion Park Tours

star-4
42 Reviews
Merlion Park
A Singapore landmark, Merlion Park is named for its centerpiece, the Merlion statue, which spouts water into Marina Bay. With the head of a lion and the body of a fish, the Merlion is the national icon of Singapore. The park is also popular with locals, who come here to play and relax along the waterfront.
 
The Basics
Spanning 27,000 square feet (2,500 square meters), Merlion Park is one of Singapore’s most popular landmarks. There are actually two Merlion statues here: the original 28.2-foot (8.6-meter) Merlion, which spouts water from its mouth into the bay, and a smaller, 6.6-foot (2-meter) Merlion cub. The park also offers stunning views of the city’s other famous attractions, including the Marina Bay Sands, the ArtScience Museum, and the Singapore Flyer.
 
To hit many of Singapore’s sights in one day, book a tour that takes you to Merlion Park along with other spots like Chinatown, Little India, Jurong Bird Park, and the Gardens by the Bay. Alternatively, for a different perspective, you can see the park from the water on a scenic cruise.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The park is open and free to visit.
  • Merlion Park is a very popular place to take selfies; bring a camera, and be prepared for crowds.
  • There are several hotels, cafés, restaurants, gift shops, and restrooms located nearby.
 
How to Get There
Merlion Park is located at One Fullerton, near Singapore’s central business district. The closest MRT station is Raffles Place, and the closest bus stop is Fullerton Square.
 
When to Get There
Merlion Park is open 24 hours a day, all year round. Visit early in the morning or late at night to avoid crowds. If you visit at night, you can enjoy views of the nearby sights illuminated with colorful lights.

Merlion Statues
The Merlion springs from Singapore’s founding myth. According to legend, a Malay prince stopped here when it was just a fishing island, returned saying he had seen a lion, and renamed the place Singapura (Lion City in sanskrit). There are seven official Merlion statues in Singapore. In addition to the two in Merlion Park, there are statues on Sentosa Island, at the Tourism Court near Grange Road, on Mount Faber, and in Ang Mo Kio.
Address: 1 Fullerton Rd, Singapore
